About this book

This book explores the 2019 Canadian Federal Election through a political marketing framework. Justin Trudeau’s leadership appeal, coupled with the differentiation of Canadian politics from American politics over recent elections, has contributed to a spike in interest for politics in the Canadian context. This collection provides in-depth quantitative and qualitative research of different aspects of this election, including the attempted re-branding of the Conservative Party under Andrew Scheer, the marketing of the NDP with the selection of the first visible minority party leader in Canadian history, the political marketing of the Bloc Québécois, Green Party, and People’s Party and, foremost perhaps, the brand maintenance of Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada. The book also looks at campaign marketing, and considers how the parties in this election utilized market intelligence, consumer data and vote targeting, and wedge issues during the campaign.

Reviews

“The study of elections has moved beyond rehashing events and studying voter behaviour. To truly understand campaigns, we need to unpack the strategic thinking behind market positioning, messaging, policy choices, branding and wedge politics. This book is a welcome addition to the political marketing literature.” (Alex Marland, Professor of Political Science, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada)

“The 2019 Canadian Federal Election contained fascinating issues in a close-run election to determine the future of the country. The team assembled by Gillies, Raynauld, and Turcotte have provided an indispensable guide to these issues in respect of political marketing. Anyone wanting to know how Canada got itself a minority government would do well to read this book. Readers will learn about how the liberals rebranded, now having to run on a record in government, the Conservatives failed to recapture the glory days of the Harper years, the NDP struggled with financial limitations to merely gain a reprieve, Quebec went its own way, while populists in the rest of Canada failed to make much of an impact. Readers will also gain a better understanding of wedge issues in Canada, the application of market intelligence, and much more. You will find this book invaluable.” (Neil Bendle, Associate Professor of Marketing, University of Georgia, USA)
